I know the last few weeks I've been showing you my scrapbook work as I'm trying to dig deeply in to my crazy stash, but I haven't abandoned my bible journaling either. So today I wanted to show you what I have been up to lately with that project!
In April, I fell in love with a new church that I was drawn to try. I always seem to lose myself in the sermons and the songs seem to pull at my emotions so hard. Its definitely made me re-evaluate my relationship with God on some levels that I clearly needed. I have always felt spirited and believed but never really studied the bible. I feel now it reaches me in a new way and I am excited about where this journey is leading me.
But like I said the music reaches me on a whole different level, it's modern and deep lyrics. I'm always inspired by music anyways so it makes no exception with these songs. That's what majority of my journaling pages are based off of, is lyrics that tugged at me in a certain way.
For the last 8 weeks, our sermon series was based on the Gospel of Mark. During one of the weeks' communion, they sang the song "A Prayer Song" which was an absolutely profound performance. I was definitely blown away and the lyrics touched my soul.
For this page I pinpointed in Mark 15: 33-39
33 Now when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”[a]
35 Some of those who stood by, when they heard that, said, “Look, He is calling for Elijah!” 36 Then someone ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink, saying, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to take Him down.”
37 And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.
38 Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 39 So when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last,[b] he said, “Truly this Man was the Son of God!”
